We are informed that this is the day appointed for the departure of Mrs Fendall for Norfolk—if rightly so it is not probable I shall have the pleasure of seeing you before your embarkation; and in that case, our proposed exchange of Magnolio for 5000 Acres of Kentucke Land stands upon uncertainty. It is true I am not fond of buying a Pig in a Poke (as the Phraze is) especially too of a sort...
If you wish for a more formal Pedigree than the enclosed, return the one sent and an other shall be framed by the time you send for Magnolio when a Bill of Sale shall also be forwarded—And as you have it not in your power at present (for want of the Papers) to pass a deed of Conveyance to me, for the 5000 Acres of Land in Kentucke agreeably to your Memorandum—I should be glad to receive some...
Enclosed you have a bill of sale for Magnolio, The expectation of the pleasure of seeing you and Mrs Lee here, hourly while the river was in a navigable State, prevented my sending it before—and as it was not your request, I did not think it proper to send it with the horse.

After revolving the subject in many different points of view, I could find no expedient for communicating the information in question, in so unexceptionable a manner, as by making the latter a continuation of my corrispondence on the inland...
I shall pass through Alexandria Monday on my way to George Town—and thence to the Great and Seneca Falls—And shall bring with me the Plats and Pattents for the Land on Rough Creek in Kentucke; in order to receive a Conveyance in the usual and accustomed mode or to return them to you. With my usual esteem and regard—I am Dear Sir Yr Obedt & Affecte Sert LB , DLC:GW . See Lee to GW, 17 Jan. and...
Your letter of this date, was put into my hands on my return from a ride at the moment dinner was waiting; for wch reason I have only time to express—in a single word—my love & thanks for the sentiments contained in it; and to assure you, that my best wishes, in which Mrs Washington unites, are presented to Mrs Lee; and that with sincere regard and affection I am ever Yours P.S. If we have any...
